Yearbooks for All Mickle Students #4126

Next year I would like all Mickle students to receive a free yearbook. Students work hard to create the yearbook but in the end, less than half of our Mickle population is able to afford one. Many students that help create the book can't even afford to purchase one and yet they take great pride in developing it. I will also work with our PTSO to help fund some of the cost and students collect box tops and the money we earn from that will go to the purchase as well. If we are successful in earning enough money, every student would get a free book. If we are only successful in funding part of the project, at least we will be able to make the cost much more affordable.

We estimate Mickle’s enrollment to be 720 students next year. The cost per book runs anywhere from $15-$20 per book. The cost depends on how many books we order and the number of pages we create for the book. This includes the cost of the creation of the books and shipping and handling. We are able to earn around $1,000 through collection of box tops, and if we work with PTSO we might be able to get $1,000-$2,000, depending on the success of the yearly fundraiser.

I am requesting such an early date because if we will need to know if there is any money for us or if we will need to start selling yearbooks and open house and not be able to fund them for all students. Thanks.
